Because people are continuing to post <4 position claims without
caution, I believe it's time to make a false report rule that will
blacklist those that continue to submit false reports. As some of
you know, I will be leaving in September and I can't imagine
subjecting the new person to thi mess (not even my worst enemy!).
Well, I will be out of office until June 20 and I will inform
everyone of these unfortunate rules (I hate rules!) when I return.
The clock starts now...

Email me with any questions concerning the recent
confirmed/rejected comets.

My own (x/comet?) claim for that day gets immediately gets lost in the bright streamer after 4:30, and I'm not sure if it ever emerges.

Hi John,


welcome aboard! your claim is obviously noise. While you are
correctly giving the motion in x as constant, the motion in y
should also be constant, but is not. Additionally the shape of the
point changes, especially in the third image. Not obvious, but
something you will find out with more experience is that it moves
too fast for a typical SOHO comet and if expected to be a Kreutz
comet it is not on the track for this comet group.

I hope this helps and good luck, Maik

***Update from the Jun 07 2003 19:55:46 Report


The "possible" comet appears to be only visible
in two consecutive photos which gives some doubt to
the comets authenticity. I personally am not sure if
such a sun grazer comet can flare up and exist for
only an hour. But here are the photos and descriptions
observed.

Hi, Tim--

What you have reported is two spots of noise
or cosmic-ray hits. Such spots will often mimic comets
in appearance. A true comet will remain fairly consistent
in appearance from one frame to the next (and not suddenly
appear and disappear in the middle of the field of view).
You should have at least four spots moving in a consistent direction and velocity. It's a good idea to check all
recent comet reports that have been confirmed (see Derek's
posts in red), look at the images and note the appearance
and velocity of the comets. If you have any questions
about SOHO comet hunting, feel free to bring them to
the Yahoo Sohohunter list at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/sohohunter/

Tony Hoffman

2003 June 13/14 -- I'll assume based on the timing and relative

motion that the dim C2 Kreutz comet I'm reporting below is the same
as the one reported by Michael Boschat, though I cannot reconcile
his coordinate system with my own. In any case, consider it a
confirmation and a coordinate conversion to the standard system

VERY,VERY faint if it is one.
Can't get sharp resolution on

with 1406 UT image and loose
it at 1430 UT. I'm going
to leave it open for now.
I looked at 1230 UT image but
the edge was too dark to tell
if it came at that time.

I have received several emails today, the latest
only some minutes ago. So the adress seems to be ok.

My latest C2 comet is about 130 pixels to the right of
John's bright comet and about 36 pixels above it
in the images 11:54 - 12:54.

I am 100% sure on it being a comet!

As usual the SOHO site is only 0142 UT

to 1024 size.
The comet is passing to the left of a med bright
star about 1/4 way from occulator disk.

How the heck can Tony confirm the Chinese find when I had to fight

getting only 2 XY's then another 2 from a B&W site! I put the post in first,
yeah 2 XY's but it was a comet and I was 100% sure after the 0242 UT B&W image,
The SOHO site still has the old one as I typoe this at 0142 UT ( blue color).

I hope this will be resolved!

them. ) I, too, hope there is a good answer.

Hello folks,


Well, I managed to finally look at all the claims. However, there
was still some unfinished business in regards to a couple claims
by T. Hoffman and P. Shkreby (bot visible in 5/31 images). I have
decided to make them both x-comets. Reasons include large time
gaps between images, a proton storm occurring throughout, and no
significant cometary appearance to distinguish from noise, in
addition to the fact that the objects are not visible in many
images. Also, Pavels' object suggests a medium bright Kreutz comet
which I usually can spot in half-res color filter images. However,
I saw nothing in the 2:54 image when the object was at its
brightest. I never deny a comet due to absence from these images
but it does cast doubt...all of these reasons compel me to call
both x-comets.

The confirmations are below...NEWS FLASH...Rainer is not too bad
at finding comets! Congratulations on #100.

And on a sour note, most of you now know that SOHO is encountering
problems when trying to move its high gain antenna (HGA). The
result is that approximately 20 days out of every three months
the DSN will not have contact with SOHO via the HGA and therefore
no observations will be available. The first of these blackouts
will occur today or tomorrow...the LASCO doors have been shut
since Monday due to an EIT bakeout.

Please email me with any qustions or corrections to the above.

I just wondered if this possible Kreutz had been reported

before. I have looked through the Archive Reports for May 2003
but I cannot see it mentioned.

The object is easily visible so would be difficult to miss.

Again my apollogies if this object has been picked up before.

With the limited time I have available on the computer just now,
I may have over-looked the applicable report.

Hello, I can confirm the first of Dave's archive claims.  I could

confidently see the second claim (5/19-5/20) in only 3 frames but
it did show Kreutz-like properties...therefore it's an x-comet.
